Happy Earth Day!

The Apparition (2012): Synopsis and Quotes

It begins in an early movie scene.  There seems to be a black goo which might be taking over Ben and Kelly's lives.  Ben (Sebastian Stan) is seen in the kitchen wiping it off of the counter.  He asks Kelly (Ashley Greene) if she's burned something.  She responds with a sarcastic, "Yeah.  Cause I cook a lot,"  to paraphrase.

In the gratuitous shower scene Kelly's soap is slowly, then quickly, turning black and she doesn't even notice that its happening.  You gotta hate that when it happens!

But, the problem is more expansive than simplicity of goo.  What has happened to the closet and what is that odd mass of substance in the upper corner of the kitchen?  Why did the 3D representation of Charles, from the seance, fall out of it after being banged repeatedly with the business end of a broom?  Why is it intact?

The biggest sign of spiritual oppression comes when the couple are asleep in different beds.  The sheet around Kelly's body envelopes and tries to smother her.  Seriously, what is the thread count on that sheet?

Ben hears her screams and is able to cut her loose.  Patrick gets called in to assist.  He thinks that he can stop the force.  However, the movie ends with a dead-looking hand over Kelly's mouth.

So, did the horror end, or, will there be a part two?

The Apparition


Ben: If anything else happens, I'll get us a motel.  Promise.

Kelly: How can I trust you anymore?

Kelly: I don't know.  But, I'm not giving up.

Kelly: My cactus.  It's dead.

Kelly: Perfect.  The only way to protect ourselves is to open a box.

Patrick: They are entering our world.

Patrick: You still have a chance to end it here.

Cook with Matcha and Green Tea. Kei Nishida

Cook with Matcha and Green Tea is a visually appeasing book, if you only were to thumb through it. The layouts and photography are just beautiful. However, aesthetics aside, this book offers so much more.
Kei Nishida

What's cool are the effects of the consumption of green tea. If you haven't studied up on this concept, it might behoove you to do just that. There are many.

Some find the very idea of green tea as a tasteless endeavor and this would be incorrect. Have you ever tried any of the different varieties of green tea? Some of them are really good!

Nishida knows that those of us who know better will also want to incorporate the stuff in our dishes. He gives us that opportunity. It's within the pages.

The Enchanted Life: Unlocking the Magic of the Everyday. Sharon Blackie

Author Sharon Blackie believes that we can live an enhanced life and that this can occur within the realms of our own awareness. The key is mindfulness. We must be mindful and therefore, in-the-now if we want to truly be aware.

Blackie lists ways to foster an enchantment for living. Other authors would call these tactics as a means to foster creativity. Either way, the techniques will make you more aware of what has previously been laid to rest, in a great sense.


In a state of awe we feel humbled. In a state of wonder we feel possible.

Stop in your tracks from time to time.

There is something in us which is always seeking a new frontier, which requires an enigma that can't be easily penetrated.

You can learn to belong anywhere...if you choose. It's an act of creation, and like all acts of creation, it's also an act of love, and an enormous leap of faith.

About the Author:

Dr. Sharon Blackie is an award-winning writer of fiction and non-fiction, including the internationally acclaimed If Women Rose Rooted, a psychologist who has specialized both in neuroscience and narrative, and a mythologist with a specialization in Celtic Studies. Her unique approach to working with myth, fairy tales and folklore highlights the insights these traditions can offer us into authentic and meaningful ways of being which are founded on a deep sense of belonging to place, a rootedness in the land we inhabit.
